Two of Helen Reddy's 1974 albums, Love Song for Jeffrey and Free and Easy, are combined onto one CD on this release, with the addition of historical liner notes and a couple of tracks from her 1978 album Live in London. Reddy was near the peak of her popularity in 1974, but although each album has a couple of hit singles, they're erratic works in which the singer flits uncomfortably between rock-influenced styles and more middle-of-the-road vocals. Love Song for Jeffrey yielded hit singles in "Keep on Singing" and "You and Me Against the World," filled out with covers of songs by writers such as Billy Joel, Jim Croce, Barry Mann, and Cynthia Weil, and tunes on which Albert Hammond and Carole Bayer Sager worked with collaborators. There's a dated '70s stridency to the more forceful cuts, like "That Old American Dream" and "Keep on Singing," while the ballads tread on soppiness, suggesting Reddy might have been more at home as a supper club singer. Free and Easy was powered in main by her number one American hit "Angie Baby," and is slightly tougher in overall tone, though the material is pretty average mid-'70s adult-oriented pop. Her fondness for ballads remained unabated with the inclusion of items like Don McLean's "You Have Lived," while "Emotion" gave her another US hit, albeit one that fell just outside the Top 20. Whatever their mediocrity, both records were pretty successful, Love Song for Jeffrey almost making the Top 10 and Free and Easy rising to #8.

~Love Song for Jeffrey~
The closest Helen Reddy came to a concept album. After losing her mother, her father and a cherished aunt in quick succession, she assembled nine songs and wrote one herself, and dedicated each to a particular family member (the title track was a musical love letter to her husband and manager, Jeff Wald). While it would be churlish to sneer at such a commendable motive, it didn't make for a brilliant album or, surprisingly, even a tender one. "You and Me Against the World" was a Top 10 hit, and it's a pleasant enough piece of balladry, but not a patch on material Reddy had tackled before. Elsewhere, there's a very weak Carole Bayer Sager effort ("Ah, My Sister") and possibly the most treacly Mann/Weill song every committed to record. Only when Reddy speeds the proceedings up a bit, as on "Keep on Singing" and "That Old American Dream," is there any relief from the tedium.

~Free and Easy~
Reddy was definitely in a holding pattern - Free and Easy is indistinguishable from its predecessors. That said, there is a little more grit in the oyster on this outing. Her third US #1 single "Angie Baby" is quite memorable, if chiefly for its baffling lyric - an insane, music-obsessed child lures a man into her bedroom and, the song implies, murders him - or something. The rest is the usual mix of pop, sugary ballads and nostalgia, supplied by the same cast - Paul Williams, Peter Allen and Don McLean. All of it is merely pleasing rather than brilliant; only "Showbiz," a fluffed attempt at wit, is downright bad.
